Show Notes

This Week In Wellness the ACT Government has voted to legalise cannabis for personal use with residents over the age of 18 allowed to possess 50 grams of cannabis and grow 2 plants. Whilst the possession and growth of cannabis would remain a federal offence and the risk of prosecution is “not entirely removed” in practice the laws will not apply.

ACT attorney-general, Gordon Ramsay, says it is time to treat drug addiction as a health issue, and that there needs to be an increase in drug and alcohol services.
